Geek of the Year Launched proudly presents Geek of the Year 2010.

Geeks are no longer the annoying arsehole sidekick in big glasses...

Now it's clear that times have changed: comics and sci-fi are cool again - Wolverine, X-Men, Doctor Who are now mainstream - and a 'geek' is simply someone who, as Martha Jones puts it in episode four, series three of Doctor Who, is 'obsessively enthusiastic about something!' A geek is cool; knows what they're interested in and where their strengths lie; and, let's face it, can be pretty hot. From Seth Cohen to Michael Cera, Suzi Perry to Alexa Chung, there's a whole world of geeks beyond Eugene from Grease or Carlton from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air, and Geek of the Year gives them a well-deserved mainstream evening in the spotlight!

We’re celebrating the world of modern geekery - for more details or to enter please visit the Geek of the Year page.

Thanks, Chris
